Wow - Been Forever

Alright, since I have been away doing the 1001skins thing; My mind being a waste of space and things being so quite here - Why not start with another skin progression post...

So, I have been working a lot on Noistromo...It has come along way from where I started and today I want to show you my current state. Note, this is now working as 'either' a classic skin or wmc skin. Still haven't finalized on which one this will be.


I've been working mostly on the eq, main. Specifically, the buttons area for both of them...hopefully, they are looking correctly tied and without anymore garbage/artifacts.

As always; feel free to Let me know how much this sux...lol.

I love these kind of skins, great work.

I'm really glad, that people like you are still spending time to create such cool classic skins.

EQ - Sneak Peak

I've begun work on the eq slide animations, and just finished the cbuttons on the main.

Sorry for not getting back to ya'll sooner...however, I've been stuck honestly. Working out some area's of this classic skin.

The WMC Version is a whole lot easier...Right, now the animation for the volume is where I am stuck and reaching out to some other pro's for help.

Anyway, figured I'd show you an actual version running...rather than a cut shot...

It really looks great. I hope that you can provide a working version soon, hehe.

It's just too bad, that this sub forum is dead. A couple of years ago, there was a lot of feedback, if someone posted a preview of a nice skin like you did.

Keep up your good work.

Indeed.. Sometimes I don't want to post too soon here 'cause it looks like I'm the only one following some threads.. When actually we' re.. 2? 3? Hahaha

Sadly, skinning is a dying art here.. I can tell how many skinners are active with the fingers of one hand: garetjax, veroka, me and.. Sometimes iron2000, or MertCan (he was doing something not so long ago..)

Hello everyone,

I myself think, skinning is not really a dying art, because You all are still here. If You wouldn't be here, there wouldn't be newer beautiful Winamp Skins available now. So I am very glad to see You here.

Maybe some of the other Winamp Skinners are currently inactive, but I am sure, they will come back some day. Also my artist-colleague & friend RUBYX with his very beautiful cloudcasts on Mixcloud has told me last week, that he wants to create new Classic Skins some day. I have copied & pasted his other own creations.

Also I myself want to say: Keep up Your good work!... I want to give You now... ★★★★★

Ah, I thought this was a design decision, lol.

Btw, the readme.txt is from another skin too, if that does matter.

Updated...and added a thank you note, to the person who slapped me around for not including the correct files.
